I would recommend adjusting your my.cnf to optimize MySQL. Also, disabling any php extensions and apache mods that you do not use will help. If you check your cron jobs and make sure no backups or anything are running at peak time, that will help a lot. Setting up a bad bots block will help decrease the number of rogue bots wasting your resources. Of course, optimizing your scripts and reducing the number of JOINs and other queries will give you a good boost. Look into a caching solution. Let me know what your site is and what software you use and I can point you in the right direction better. If you are not sure about all of this, let me know and I can work on it, wouldn't be expensive at all.
